Irate residents storm OCPD’s office over soccer fan murder

17 June 2014, 15:15 Oduor Omondi

Kisumu - The killing of a video hall manager at Kisumu’s Manyatta Estate by police officer last Sunday has widely been condemned with residents on Monday storming the office of the Officer Commanding Police Division (OCPD) in Kisumu town to protest the murder.

The residents who included the relatives of the deceased and led by the Kisumu youth representative, Benson Onoko demanded that the matter be handled without discrimination and favor.

The protestors expressed fear that the matter might be hushed since it involves one of their own.

OCPD Musa Kongoli had a hard time calming the aggrieved relatives and assured them that serious disciplinary action will be taken against the officer and termed the incident as unfortunate.

Collins Odour Okoth was allegedly shot by an administration police after he protested a decision by the officer to switch off a television set showing World cup match between Uruguay and Costa Rica.

Kongoli urged the residents to keep calm as legal action is being undertaken to ensure that justice has been done to the family.

“Let us not deal with the matter emotionally to please the public as it can interfere with the case. Let us not revenge the incident as it won’t solve anything,” Kongoli pleaded.

He reassured the resident of their security amidst complains by the protestors that police were taking advantage of patrols to extort money and allegedly steal from the public.

The County Commander, David N’getich asked the residents to remain vigilant and help security officers in maintaining security.
